Savoir-faire and the Frame of the Cure
Friday, January 10, 2014 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
The School of Visual Arts
136 West 21st Street, Room 408, New York, NY
Clinical understanding and the direction of the cure in psychoanalysis differ from those of all other clinical practices. Based on selected readings of Freud’s and Lacan’s texts, this seminar will address the specificity of clinical analysis and its aim, and reflect on savoir-faire in the transference. Particular attention will be paid to the various components that constitute the psychoanalytic frame of the cure and orient its direction, underlining the singularity of each analytic act.
Seminar schedule: January 10 and January 31; March 21; April 4; May 9; June 13, 2014
Readings: Each meeting will include a discussion on specific readings, which will be decided meeting by meeting. The first meeting will begin approaching Freud’s Papers on Technique.
